[Solved]"Connection editor"fails connecting Alfa AWUS036 usb

Postby amorales » 2017-12-16 05:46

Hi:
After migrating from jessie to stretch and installing wireless-tools, wpasupplicant and installing
firmware-linux-nonfree and firmware-misc-nonfree for the wifi usb alfa AWUS036 which uses the Ralink rtl8187 driver, the KDE "Connection editor" does not connect. I think the card is working since editing the connection and looking the detected SSID all the nets around are detected correctly. The "Connection editor" was configurated as
Mode: Infrastructure. Security: WPA & WPA2 Personal. IPv4 Method: Automatic. "Connection editor" responses after seconds: "The wifi network could not be found" in spite that all nets are displayed.
With the same configuration and same card in jessie was working very well.
I am asking for help to fix the problem.
Thanks.

Are you sure the configuration is the same? If the iface is not wlan0 then it could be known issue with wifi.scan-rand-mac-address

Dear bw123:
Following your suggestion, I found the solution to my problem in:
https://duckduckgo.com/html/?q="wifi.scan-rand-mac-address"
it consisted in writing in
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf

the text:
[device]
wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no

Thank you very much.
